What Anti Virus do you use?

I've been using AVG Free for a long time and it seems to work very well to the point that I don't see any real advantage to paying for AV.  AVG however does seem to add quite an overhead to my relatively powerful PC and I'm convinced that performance is much better without it.  Today I have been having problems with administrative rights on Faststone and after four hours of digging for solutions found that uninstalling AVG resolved the problem.  I see that my AVG was updated yesterday so not impressed.  While it is uninstalled I thought I would take the opportunity to consider my AV options.  I see that Kapersky and Avast free versions get very good reviews.  Has anybody any other recommendations?

I'm working on the assumption that I need something more than Windows Defender but do I really?
